Who do we serve?
First-year students entering or changing their major to a Romain College of Business major. We also process graduation checkout paperwork to ensure you are on track to graduate.
Sophomores, juniors, and seniors declared Romain College of Business majors should meet with their faculty advisor about class schedules and career advice.
How does advising work?
Each semester you will meet with your assigned advisor to discuss classes for upcoming semesters, majors/minors, any questions about classes, USI, campus life, and more. Watch your inbox for an email from your advisor when it’s time to meet!
What is the purpose of advising?
Academic Advisors act as your guide and personal resource specialist on campus! They help you create graduation plans and succeed in all your goals as well as aid you in navigating the unique challenges you may encounter along the way.
Who is my advisor?
Your advisor's name can be seen in your DegreeWorks Audit through myUSI. Log in and click the DegreeWorks icon, and you'll find your advisor's name in the information at the top.
Transitioning to a Faculty Advisor?
After your first year, you will be assigned to a faculty member in the Romain College of Business who specializes in your major. You will receive an email about who your advisor will be and it will be listed on DegreeWorks. After you transition, you will meet primarily with your faculty advisor to discuss your classes, involvement opportunities to build your resume like internships and clubs, and post-graduation plans like finding a job or attending graduate school.
You can still visit the center for help creating a graduation plan, registering for classes, filling out change of major, add/drop, or withdraw paperwork. Please be sure to contact your Faculty Advisor first.
